If you’re a fan of space exploration, then a trip to the NASA Ames Research Center should be on your Mountain View to-do list. Located in the heart of California’s Silicon Valley, the NASA Ames Center is just a short, ten-minute drive from our Mountain View hotel. Adults and kids alike will enjoy a visit to the NASA Ames Center. NASA Ames scientists have been exploring and designing missions to the outer space for decades. You can explore exhibits such as the Real Moon Rock, which displays a real lunar rock sample retrieved by the crew of Apollo 15, the Kepler exhibit that explains the Kepler Mission which was designed to survey our region of the Milky Way galaxy and potential new planets, and you can view fascinating models of previous and recent spacecraft missions from NASA Ames in the Spacecraft Missions exhibits. Open seven days a week for free, you can take a self-guided tour so you can let your imagination run wild at your own pace. After a day of space exploration, come back to our Mountain View hotel to freshen up for a night on the town at one of the many Mountain View restaurants.
